The leader of the training is Adam Janke, St. Paul Street Evangelization vice-president and program director. After converting to Catholicism from biblical fundamentalism in 2005, Janke obtained his bachelor of arts degree in theology and catechetics and his masters in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. He has been featured on EWTN television and radio, Catholic Answers Live, the Radio Maria Network, The Son Rise Morning Show, and in The National Catholic Register.

The cost for the event is $20, which includes lunch and a binder with training materials.
